Report: Bob Costas' Olympic Eye Infection Was From Botched Botox

If you were a TV host with a huge gig on the horizon — the ding dang Olympics — you might make an appointment to get a little freshen up with the cosmetic surgeon. Who could blame you?

Leave Bob Costas Alone!

I have had my share of fun goofing on Bob Costas over the years. He is NBC's resident nostalgia elf, and every Sunday night during football season he climbs up on his big-boy chair and arranges himself in that self-satisfied, half-canted way of his and delivers unto you, the common folk, a halftime sermon that says… » 2/11/14 9:22am 2/11/14 9:22am

Taking potshots at Bonnie Bob Costas, America's premier sports broadcaster, is a national pastime almost as popular as the spectacles he fronts. And why not? In these cheesy and uncertain times, he seems too comfortable, too confident and, at 60, too cute. He does his job better than you will ever do yours, dude. If… » 12/05/12 10:15am 12/05/12 10:15am

Here's Bob Costas dialing the smarm up to 11 in this referendum on perspective and sports by way of the Kasandra Perkins/Jovan Belcher murder-suicide.
